So…he drinks the blood of the deflowered AND holds it down???
Don't they all. Unlike Farrar, though, I doubt if he really believes any of that stuff.
Nicky Hager’s book (which I did read.) and did you read the book?
Did you ever see Andy Warhol's Dracula, where the title character suffers terrible consequences if he drinks the blood of a non-virgin? When he happens to bite a victim who's been freshly deflowered by Joe Dalessandro he rushes to the bathroom, where he retchingly fills the bathtub with more lurid green vomit than his body could possibly contain.
While some of Key's stauncher defenders give the impression that they'd suffer a similar reaction from reading any of Hager's works, I'm sure that Mr Hooton is made of sterner stuff.
I loved Flick as a child
Him and Toot.
He would be well advised to flick the engine….maybe when he’s big enough???
They won't let me put out fires, isn't that a shame
Someday I'll be big and strong and fight every flame...
But there are unions and then there are other unions.
And there are unionists and unionists. For example, it’s possible to be militantly anti-abortion, anti-gay and anti-feminist while remaining a major powerbroker in the Australian union movement.
At the last count the Shoppies were one of Australia’s largest unions with over 200,000 members.
I recall she brought Shearer on board too. Fancy that.
And Shane Jones. She's a complex one.
Sir Michael Cullen, who lives in Ohope…
if only Ohope was really a thing with feathers…
Dalvanius Prime once told me that, according to the lore of his Taranaki iwi, an illustrious ancestor in those parts had a knack for taming moas. His prize specimen was a flying version, which he employed in a daily shuttle service between Patea and points north of there. Perhaps Cullen could have a word to Mallard to hurry up that jurassic park project of his.
Palmer, Moore, Bolger, Shipley, Clark, Cullen etc are never more than a text away.
Former New Zealand politician Sir Michael Cullen, who lives in Ohope, travels to Wellington several times a week in his roles on the board of KiwiBank and as New Zealand Post chairman. He said he will now have to leave home at 4.30am to travel to Tauranga Airport to get a direct flight to Wellington and would not be home until 10pm.
Wellington City (like Dunedin and South Auckland) remains well to the Left of the rest of New Zealand.
And I’d bet that not so long ago you’d have confidently said that about Christchurch. I’ve yet to read an honest post-mortem on what went so horribly wrong there from Labour’s POV that doesn’t involve a certain amount of whistling in the dark.
Someone who can smack down the purported fence between “Waitakere man” and “urban liberals” in a positive forward-thinking way can only be helpful to the prospects of the party.
Little’s firmly matter-of-fact affirmation that sexual harassment is a serious issue is a refreshing change from Cunliffe’s musings about his guilt over being a man. Whether Cunliffe intended it that way or not, it’s encouraging that we’ve moved beyond the level of pathetic gratitude for some aspect of the leader’s personality.
Look, I’m queer, I’m Gen-X, I live as close to the central city as I can. According to people like Semmens or Trotter, I must be natural enemy to the Little and his mates.
However Little’s leadership develops, it’s a safe bet that Semmens and Trotter will still be gagging for their meathead messiah for a long time to come.
